Plans to improve Naas playground are to be released

Cllr Darren Scully wants action

Plans to upgrade the playground at Monread Park, Naas will be unveiled this month.

Kildare County Council’s parks superintendent Simon Wallace is to discuss the plans with Naas councillors this month.

Cllr Darren Scully has called for the some of the €365,000 earmarked for playgrounds for new playgrounds to be spent on new playground in the Naas area (Sallins, Caragh and Eadestown) because he believes that these projects will not be concluded this year.

KCC has said that work on a masterplan for the entire park area, including the playground can’t proceed once the commitments to playground in Sallins, Caragh and Eadestown are met.

Cllr Scully previously said that he has received complaints about the condition of the playground. He said security devices should also be installed.

Cllr Scully also said that new play equipment and outdoor gym equipment is needed there. “It needs an upgrade. We should allocate a substantial amount of money.”
